Description

This is an up-to-date comprehensive survey, tracing the development of Islam in Africa from the 7th century AD to the present day. It covers the whole continent and gives a detailed account of the Sufi mystical cosmology and the opposition to it and analyzes long-and short-term affects of the impact of European colonialism on Islamic Africa. Following a survey of the state of Islam in present day African nation states, the book concludes with a study of the rise of Islamic fundamentalism and its clash with African nationalism.show more
